Maui Shoot Locations

Picking a location for your shoot can be really challenging, especially if you’ve never been to any of the places before! We want to make it as easy as possible for you, so we’ve created a list of our favorite locations to shoot on Maui! Maui has so many different types of landscapes, so there are a lot of options for you! We are always open to go to places off this list, these are just some incredible spots we love shooting at, and spots our clients love! A lot of these locations work great for both a Standard Couples Session and an Adventure Couples Session. For some Adventure Sessions we can go to multiple locations depending on where they are located, and some we will stay in the same location because they’re more time intensive!

Kapalua Ironwoods


We love this spot for it’s amazing rocky cliffs, lava fields, and beautiful white sand beach! We can stick to the central spots, or we can walk the Kapalua Coastal Trail and you can even end with some cliff jumping (the spot is not high at all!) if you want to! This spot is only available for 2 hour adventure sessions!


M+R Sub-3

This spot is one of our favorite places to watch the sunset! It has big green fields next to rocky cliffs, with dramatic ocean views. It’s insanely beautiful and watching the sunset here is unreal. It’s also in Paia town which is the perfect place to go explore after the shoot!

Paia Bay


We love Paia Bay beach because it’s your classic white sand beach, bright blue water look. There is lots of space to run around on the beach, and some really cool rocky areas!

Waihee Ridge Trail


(Don't mind the iPhone photo!) Wiahee Ridge is similar to Iao Valley, it has major Jurasic Park feels, but there are also incredible panoramic views on a clear day! This trail has dramatic cliffs and mountains surrounding you, and feels like you’re in a jungle! The initial hike is about 45 min. and has a steep first 10 minutes, but then levels out! This is ideal for an Adventure Shoot!

Poli Poli


We think this location is awesome because it’s something different than the typical beach location. It is located in upcountry Maui, so on a clear day you can see all of the island! On a foggy day it has a cozy/dreamy feel! There are huge fields of green grass, and then spots of forrest as well!

Black Sand Beach


We think black sand beaches are so cool!! This beach has a huge red wall sheltering the end of the beach, giving it a really unique look! There are rocks we can climb out on over the ocean, and then we can walk down the beach to a more green area as well! It’s super unique!

Road To Hana


The road to Hana is an absolute must-see when you come to Maui! This is where so many of the waterfalls, fruit or flower stands, beaches, and more! This is only available for an Adventure Session, so that we have plenty of time to stop along the way!

Haleakala National Park

(Excuse the iPhone photos again!) This is also a must-see on Maui! Haleakala Ntl. Park is absolutely breathtaking for sunset. Haleakala is the dormant volcano on maui, and the word Haleakala translates to “house of the sun” It is unlike any other place in the world, it sort of looks like mars! This is a really incredible spot for an adventure session as well. There are a few different hikes here depending on what you’re wanting!
